195. I'm just reporting what I see up here.
Our mayor actually sued to stop the bridge just last week.

The Municipality of Anchorage has filed a lawsuit to force the federal government to drop its green light for the controversial Knik Arm bridge project.

The Sullivan administration lawsuit says the road connection to the Anchorage side of the bridge would be a big problem for the expanding port.

"Adverse impacts on the Port of Anchorage can indirectly impact all Alaskans who rely on that Port for the transshipment of goods. Connector road construction under the Selected Alternative will irreparably injure the Port's vital role in the regional economy," said the city's lawsuit.

The lawsuit was filed this week in U.S. District Court. It says the court should require the Federal Highway Administration to set aside the Record of Decision it issued last December giving the Knik Arm Bridge project an OK to go ahead.


KABATA may be "moving forward," but there are no guarantees.
